Straight Up Tasty: Meals, Memories and Mouthfuls From My Travels 
Having eaten his way from coast to coast and around the globe, Adam Richman has learned more than a little bit about what makes food taste good. Straight Up Tasty: Meals, Memories and Mouthfuls From My Travels shows us what Adam serves up when it is his turn behind the stove.

The more than 100 diverse, dazzling, and downright delectable recipes reflect the flavor combinations, techniques, and ingredients that Adam has encountered on his nonstop travels, all translated into easy-to-use-recipes perfect for the home cook and all given a distinctive Richman spin. Recipes include: Breakfast: Oatmeal Pancakes, Hangover Egg Sammy, Gorp-Style Granola Bars; Let’s Do Lunch: Bloody Mary Gazpacho with Shrimp, Bahn Mi Burger, Chilo-Frito Sloppy Joe; Snacks & Small Plates: Pulled Pork Eggrolls, Grandma’s Egg Salad, Easy Sushi; Dinner: Magnificent Meatloaf, Easy Carbonara, Loco Moco: Sides & Salads: Miso-Roasted Veggies, Wild Mushroom Tart, Spaghetti-Style Spaghetti Squash; Sauces & Condiments: Easy-Ass Salsa, Candied Bourbon Bacon, Roasted Garlic Mayo; Sweets: Leftover Holiday Candy Recipes, S’Mores Cups, Challah Bread Puddin.’ 

Adam brings in a few family favorites as well, and shares the stories that inspired these meals in his warm, hilarious voice. He also holds forth on topics as diverse as where to encounter the nation’s top burgers and why the best thing on a restaurant menu isn’t always what you think. Adam shows you how to pull out the stops at the dinner table and serve up delicious dishes every time without hitting the road and proves once and for all why he is America’s ambassador of flavor.

America the Edible
The exuberant host of Travel Channel’s Man v. Food, Adam Richman, has crisscrossed the continent in search of the best eating experiences this country has to offer. Believing that regional cuisine reveals far more than just our taste for chicken-fried steak or 3-way chili, Richman explores the ethnic, economic, and cultural factors that shape the way we eat—and how food, in turn, reflects who we are as a nation.

Using his signature wit and casual charm, Richman takes you on a tour around the country, explaining such curiosities as  why bagels are shaped like circles, why fried chicken is so popular in the South, and how some of the most iconic American food— hot dogs, fries, and soda—are not really American at all. Writing with passion, curiosity, and a desire to share his knowledge, he includes recipes, secret addresses for fun and tasty finds, and tips on how to eat like a local from coast to coast.

Food Fighters

The table is set for the ultimate culinary clash in this one part cooking competition, one part game show. Host Adam Richman ("Man v. Food") will give homegrown amateur cooks the chance to test their skills against professional chefs. Every down-home cook has that one signature dish or secret family recipe that always gains favor with friends and family. Now, imagine going head-to-head in the kitchen against five professional chefs, who try to cook your specialty dish even better than you in the hopes of winning over a dinner party made up of the American public. With each savored victory, the cash prize gets bigger and bigger as the home cooks rise to every challenge and outcook the professional chefs. Think you've got what it takes to serve up the competition?
